The Catogenic Diet for Cats

Gwyneth Returns: Part 2

“Daddi, have you noticed I’ve lost my love handles?”

“No, I can’t say I have, Rinpoche.”

“It’s all due to Gwyneth’s latest diet, Daddi. It’s called the Catogenic or Cato diet. 

“I assume you mean the Ketogenic or Keto diet?”

“No, Daddi, that’s a diet for people. Gwyneth’s Catogenic diet is for cats.” 

“Surely you’ve learnt your lesson by now, Rinpoche? I’ve warned you repeatedly not to listen to Gwyneth’s silly dietary advice.”

“But, Daddi, the Catogenic diet is such a balanced diet … and simple to remember too. All you have to do is to eat a whole lot of fat and not much else, and in no time your body turns into a fat burning machine! I’ve only been on the diet for five minutes, and already I’m going into a state of catosis…”

“What’s that?”

“Gwyneth says it’s when your body produces catones instead of glucose as a source of energy. The catones provide energy for your body and brain. That’s why I’m so much smarter now, Daddi. Hadn’t you noticed?”

“If you were truly smarter, you wouldn’t be listening to Gwyneth!”

“But, Daddi, Gwyneth says…”

“Of course, Daddi!”
